The song in question was called, "Dear Americans" ... and featured the lyrics, "Kill those f*cking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives."

He continues, "Kill those f---ing Yankees who ordered them to torture ... Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers ... Kill them all slowly and painfully.”

Now, PSY has released a statement explaining, "The song I featured on in question from eight years ago -- was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq

Ok, I give up. WTF is a “PSY” and why should I give a rat’s rear end about something called “Gangnam Style”?

Then again, the next time I watch a “reality show” will be my first time.

If he was so sorry, why did it take him 8 YEARS [and an invitation to the White Hut] before he ‘apologized’?

I wouldn’t watch anyway. Anything on tv even remotely involving the Gangsta-in-Chief and his homegirl is enough to make me ill.

I’m sure I will find something better to do...like maybe trim my toenails.

Pop star from Korea is liberal and hates America. Shocking... BHO hates America and was elected president twice. That IS shocking... and also pathetic.

On my forgiveness list, her name is below his. At least he asked for forgiveness--something Hanoi Jane never did.

Indeed. At least 51% of our Marxist country agree with PSY. The head Marxist knows this too well.

The guy is just another militant homosexual.

I don’t understand trends. The macarena is a joke but here we go again with this wierdo. 5 years on and he’ll be a joke as well.

To some he’s a joke now and always was.

Since this is the second thread you've posted about "Psy", I'll add the same comment I posted on your other thread if that's ok with you.......

His apology:

“As a proud South Korean who was educated in the United States and lived there for a very significant part of my life, I understand the sacrifices American servicemen and women have made to protect freedom and democracy in my country and around the world.

The song I featured on in question from eight years ago – was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two Korean schoolgirls that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time.

While I’m grateful for the freedom to express one's self, I’ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I’m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused by those words.

“I have been honored to perform in front of American soldiers in recent months – including an appearance on the Jay Leno show specifically for them- and I hope they and all Americans can accept my apology.

While it’s important that we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so. In my music, I try to give people a release, a reason to smile.

I have learned that thru music, our universal language we can all come together as a culture of humanity and I hope that you will accept my apology."

Speaking for myself only, I accept his apology. That was certainly a trying time and I can understand his anger at the deaths of the Korean schoolgirls in a war that really didn't involve his country...... And for what it's worth, that was the most succinct and heart felt apology I've ever read by anyone who has ever criticized this country. I commend him for doing so........

He’s a terrible speciality act. Everytime I see him, I’m reminded of Tiny Tim. As you say, 5 years...

With all the great artists in America, this is the guy the White House invites.

I had a hunch it was the same guy whose video you linked to which has already been watched by 903 million people,for some reason. Ironically, probably because they thought it was just
“mindless fun”. But we’ve seen that there’s no such purity
and goodwill in this guy.....sounds like the thing from 8 years ago shows he was compete in the rap market, and not making it, so he changed course and turned off onto the brainless youtube video yellowbrickroad to fame. (A full 15 minutes of fame)

Sorry, but calling for killing of the innocent is hard to forgive.

If he were truly sorry, he would not perform for the Occupant of the Oval Office.

If I were a performer who hates Obama, I'd put my politics behind me and perform at the drop of a hat.

The only people likely to get pissed off at me are the obsessive, compulsive folks who view the entire world thru their political window. They need to realize that there's more to this world than politics and they need to get a life........

Speaking for myself only, I accept his apology.

I'm certainly glad you're speaking for yourself only.

As for me, I'll speak for the thousands of American lives lost in defense of Korea, so that this fat-assed, ignorant POS could come to American and get an education and have the opportunity to spew his vile crap.

A pox upon him and to hell with him.

And he did not write the apology, nor did it spring from his diseased mind.

His handlers saw visions of DOLLARS flying out of their and his pockets...that is the only reason an "apology" came out.
